Crowded quarters are the benefits of having a personal dressing room. It helps keep stuff organized...naturally.
"Mom told me it was here...somewheres."

...and wander the hallways to visit friends.
A caffeine-rush before curtain call.
Waiting in the wings...and waiting between dances.
In the end it isn't about any of these things.
